I am currently doing other things, I didn't have much time to play with the
samples. I've got some new ideas on how to make the flow layer even more
powerful, by allowing multiple functions to be called in the same context.
This will improve the usability tremendously, as you can have multiple
functions as entry points, all sharing the same global variables space.

The current code also has a bug, as global variables are shared across all
client invocations, which is really dangerous. What should happen is that
the value of the global variables should be visible to only one client, and
each client should have its own global variable space. An application global
space should then be added, for values which are shared across the
application. I have a solution to this problem, I started to work on it, but
is not yet finished.
